Description

White Headed bird with some red on the upper body has been wintering with the other 16 species that feast off of my feeders. I am concerned that maybe this is the eye infection of the finch? White Headed shows no signs of being sick.

Your House Finch has Leucism, a mutation in the feathers color, nothing that will effect his health.
